My friends – about a month ago I wrote a post, My Evolution of Dieting, Falling, and Getting Back Up, but little did I know how literal I was when I said I was falling and getting back up.
Within a week of writing that post I was taken to the emergency room and diagnosed with vertigo. It was the worst experience of my life. My entire world was spinning.
I threw up for two days and the meds of AntiVert, also called Meclizine, and anti-nausea meds did nothing to help ease my suffering of spinning and nausea. (more…)
As some of you might have noticed – it's been awhile since I've updated you on my progress. There's a reason for that. I slid back into my shell and quietly went back to stress eating.
I must admit that I didn't think I would be doing this again after everything I've gone through in the last year to lose weight and get healthy. I was doing so well and had really felt like I had reclaimed my life. (more…)
A new chapter has begun in my journey – this quest of self-discovery to find peace and balance with my emotional eating.
It seems like I'm always fighting it, controlling it, hating it and never loving it. Yes – loving it. Is there such a thing? Is that crazy? How can you love something you hate? (more…)
Now that I've completed the Ideal Protein Diet protocol and have phased off into mainteance mode I'm ready to start the next phase.
When I phased off of Ideal Protein, I did so because I had lost so much hair from my weight loss (not necessarily because of IP) and I wanted to eat a more whole foods diet. (more…)
I've decided to stick with Ideal Protein instead of transitioning to the Atkins Diet for mainly one reason.
In the past I would start on a diet and then think I could change it up into something new and keep losing weight and then I would just royally mess the whole thing up. (more…)
Okay, so I'm at Whole Foods during my lunch shopping for some groceries. I picked out this head of kale and when I turned around for a bag, this man was starring at me, opened a new bag for me and held it so I could drop my kale inside.
I was a little caught off guard and thanked him.
He said, “That's a beautiful bouquet of kale.” (more…)
